The Hosts...

Meet the two hosts of Talkin' Cigars.  We will also have guests that at some point we will introduce you to as well.  I know there are three people in this picture, but the guy in the middle is a Miami sports fan, so we cannot introduce you to him. Just kidding, he is our cousin and we're allowed to rip on him for his poor sports tastes!

Mark Dinovitz

The younger brother, but better looking one!!  Ha Ha.  I've been smoking cigars for the past 28 years.  I love visiting local cigar shops in all of my travels and always support their efforts.  We grew up in a cigar house and my dad used to always have a stocked old fridge in the basement with all sorts of crappy cigars, but he was passionate about those crappy cigars.  He was also a pipe enthusiast, but that's not my thing at all.

The older, wiser, funnier brother.  I've been smoking cigars for the past 30 years.  (Technically my dad gave me my first cigar at 12 years of age 39 years ago lol).  In the old days I thought a Swisher Sweet was a good smoke (no offense to Swisher but my tastes have expanded since then).  Nowadays I enjoy a wide variety of cigars paired with one of my favorite whiskies.
